It was pretty ironic to read an article from the New York Times News Service about J. Edgar Hoover's plan to imprison Americans suspected of disloyalty. The editors of the New York Times actively undermined the current administration (during a war) by exposing a successful operation that tracked international financial transactions to identify funding for terrorists.

Wouldn't it be nice to have an FBI director today who understood how dangerous it is to have so many active subversives operating in our country? If Hoover had a similar list today, I am sure the editors of the New York Times and the Associated Press would be near the top.
